How to use a Sensory Snake
Baby: Supports tommy time and strengthen your baby´s sensory development
Toddler: Allow and help your toddler to walk on the snake to train their balance role, roll over the snake and nestle into it, this will help your toddle develop their motor skills and get better self-awareness.
Child: The Sensory Snake can help your child to balance their sensory development and unwind by wrapping his weight around your child or by placing part of the snake on your child to benefit from the calming weight. The weight simulates a calming hug and helps balance their stress hormone Cortisol, which allows your child to feel relaxed and comforted.
The Weighted Toy Snake applies deep pressure stimulation and help increase calmness and decrease the feelings of anxiety.
Deep Pressure Stimulation (DPS) is firm but gentle squeezing, hugs, or holding that relaxes the nervous system. This pressure can be applied with the hands, special massage tools, or products that your child can wear or wrap around themselves to provide pressure.
This therapy can trigger a chain reaction in the body that releases an overall sense of calm and peace.
